Music Video Daydream #4

lf Last week I spammed my Facebook with a music video quiz. I posted screen shots of some of my all-time favorite music videos and people would guess what it was. Pretty fun and a good way to weed out all the people that think you might be annoying.

Any idea what the MVD above could be? If you’re friends with me on FB you’ve already been given a clue during the quiz.

*Hint* Think Romeo & Juliet.

Cacti Hunt

400-109058 400-109186 400-109187

So, I tweeted Alan Carr ages ago about the white cacti on his set for his show. He is obviously trying to convince the producers to send them to me, can’t find decent bubble wrap or just had no idea what I was talking about.

Dwell (other dwell) magazine arrived this morning and I had a flip through the 100’s of rad couches and found them practically begging me to buy them as they’re only like £15 each. Mine. Yours?article-1278580273073-0A3D2B76000005DC-692824_466x310 Oh Alan…

Wear it or Not?

It looks like she’s morphing into a sparkly Leopard. (Kourtney is by far my favorite Kardashian.) Today, I’m totally going to wear the leopard leggings my Mom gave me.

Hail Yes, shoes.


I would be so happy for my feet if they had these on.

P.s. Thanks for Ryan’s Birthday comments on the post before this one. Ryan and I went out to a romantic dinner. We ate delicious fancy food and I embarrassed him by telling our server it was his birthday. You know what happens next. I know he secretly loved it (not). I even caught him making a wish before he blew out the candle.

Happy Birthday, Boo!

016Dear Ryan,

Happy birthday! I know you hate birthday’s but today is your day. I love you so much. You are a strange and mysterious man yet I feel like I know you better than anyone ever will, which makes me feel really special. I know that every day with me is a scary surprise and you seem to be ok with that. Thank you for letting me be me and accepting me for who I am. You build things for us, spark crazy ideas at 3am, devour chicken like it’s your last meal every time and wear a suit extremely well. You are myman4lyfe.

capedress2capedressimage1xxlimage2xxlMore dresses with detachable capes please! I haven’t shopped or browsed much online for clothing. It’s probably for the best, I mean, look at those dresses. I just want to be able to say “excuse me, you’re stepping on my cape.”

Romantic Rings

wat-r1827 swat-r1795


I absolutely love my engagement ring and wedding band. They are two of the most precious pieces of jewellery I have. But every time I see Cathy Waterman rings I pretty much fall in love with them and make up stories in my head about the lady who would pass the rings down generation after generation. The styles are endless but the price is pretty insane especially because I lose everything. I’m so glad my rings are tiny and will never ever be slipping off of these fingers.

Someone has a case of the Fridays

sassbidehairHere is a little list of what I’ve been lovin lately:

x How to practice Yoga in a taxi – also good for on a plane, not getting off your butt on that couch or at work.
x I really want to try this wackadoo hairstyle. If only I knew how to do a french braid. One step at a time.
x I’d love to have this storage setup in our bedroom. We have no closet and it drives me insane.
x Really cute and comfy workout wear…to inspire me? Go shirt knots!
x I found the shoes I used to wear when I was elementary school.

K, it’s a short list because I need to get my enchilada on! Have a great weekend!

Visit Wales

I’ve never been to Wales but these simple adverts (and their font) are really winning me over. Tell me what it’s reeeeally like.

**UPDATE** So apparently this is a real family and you can watch longer versions of the video/commercials above, here. Still good. Ryan says don’t believe it but I’m thinkin, I’m sold. I totally want to sleep in a yurt.

For the salad freaks

3477I have a feeling there are going to be lots of salads being made today as it’s the first day of the week in the New Year. Here is one of my favorite salads and I’ve just made the dressing and popped it in the fridge for later.

Easy Peasy Honey & Lime Vinaigrette
4 teaspoons lime juice
2 teaspoons honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 dash cayenne pepper
3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Whisk together lime juice, honey, cayenne pepper and salt. Add oil and whisk until blended. Cover and pop it in the fridge for up to two days. Whisk again before chowing down.

For the salad I just toss dried cranberries, walnuts and goats cheese over spinach leaves. Maybe you’ve tried it before with a strawberry vinaigrette or balsamic, yum.

It may not be the healthiest salad in the world and I’ve never been one to count calories, in fact I wouldn’t even know where to start with all that stuff. I just know that if it’s green, fresh, or colorful – it’s probably good for you. Eat away.

Bed Envy

Rue_AldridgeHome-10Amazing, amazing bedroom. I think I really just love the headboard or whatever they used as the headboard. Maybe a room divider? I need to start doing OCD the karate chop to my pillows to make it look a bit more glamorous!

Second photo: well you get it

Above is our good friend Michelle and the lower photo is my husband, Ryan – who is looking at his watch thinkin “it’s time to go”. I had just watched the second Grey Gardens film so I was all about dressing up, dancing and having a graaand time. I ended up with lipstick on because our lovely cross dressing friend said it was Jean Paul Gaultier so I had to try it.

x Amazing nouveau Mucha inspired robe dress my Mom sent me last year. I love it.
x A handmade star headpiece made last minute by moi.

Hope you all had a memorable year.xx
